The Beginning of a New Adventure: Fresh Air Summer 2022

And they are off! As soon as the school year ended, NYC children couldn’t wait to head to camp from Riverbank State Park on Wednesday, June 29th for a summer full of new adventures, meeting new friends, learning new skills and having fun! 

Check out what some of our campers are excited for!

“This will be my third year at camp and I’m so excited! I’ve been looking forward to going back ever since the start of Covid. My favorite activity at camp is fishing! I learned to fish my first year and caught a fish bigger than my head! I hope I can catch even bigger fish this year.  I love doing cheers as a group because it makes us all feel like we’re a team.” – Avvi, 11 

“I can’t wait to swim in the lake! My favorite memory from camp is when we were playing in the sun all together. Camp is really fun and makes you curious to learn new things.” – Paris, 9
